Exhibit A is all about him, something masculine, something for the “man”, something grunge, something altered, something that talks to him!
So what can talk to a man? Well, I think it needs to be a bit brawny, or harsh. I chose cardboard to have as base or background. On the ribs I applied some embossing powder liquid platinum and between the ribs I sprayed some dylusion ink which I misted with water.
I made a blueprint plate that I rusted a bit, you can find the how-to in Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities vol 3. (as there are challenges running from this book I can’t show you the steps, pg 46), it looks like that:
The altered blueprint plate I applied on the cardboard and in the upper corners I added a piece of altered chain to be able to hang it later. I added a photo from Tim Holtz Found relatives collection and some ephemera and a wooden number disk that I painted a bit darker. In the corner of the cardboard I applied some self colorized transparent embossing paste through the cargo letter stencil.
At the lower corner I added a ticket from the ephemera pack some numbers with colorized transparent embossing paste and “Exhibit A” from the word bands.
So that’s all about him… and I am going to share that with Vintage Journey.
